All stars die, but not all stars die the same. Some will explode and leave no trace behind. These special explosions with no trace are called pair-instability supernovae (PISNe) and only happen in the most massive of stars. Today’s paper from 2009 investigates a unique supernova, SN 2007bi, that was initially thought to be the first PISN ever observed.
This week we’re celebrating this year’s astronomical awardees for the Nobel Prize in Physics. Today’s Bite investigates the third and final 2020 Physics Nobel Laureate, Roger Penrose.
It is important that we, as a scientific community, make science accessible and scientific careers attainable to all. One such method of making astronomy more inclusive to the DHH community is AstroDance! Click here to read more!
Is there a M∗-SFR-Z relation at high redshift? Yep! Read me to find how it was discovered!
ASAS-SN searches for supernova and finds variable stars too! They found so many (~90,000) that they decided to classify them all. How do you go about classifying 90,000 things? Machine learning, of course!
